I was out in a garden in Vacaville, and I noticed some movement in the bushes near-by. When I looked over, I saw a male and female quail They didn't run away, which surprised me, when I saw them. they waited for me to make the first move, which allowed me to get pretty good pictures. But when I took one more step closer, they ran off into a thicker bush; the male ran in-front of the female. It was a warm day out when I saw them.
